Worker V:2.0 (Ode to the Pencil Skirt)
I wore this to work last week. I never get to take photos in an actual office, so pretend you see a desk behind me instead of an air con unit, OK? I shot these just before I dashed out the front door for my morning commute. And, yeah, I do realize it’s another black outfit. What can I say? It’s what I do best.
Wait, have you seen the shoes? Get clicking if by some bizarre chance you haven’t. Business in the front, party in the back.
Worth the click(s)!

I don’t know what you think about this look, but it is one of my favorites in terms of how I felt when I wore it—which was powerful, feminine, a little edgy. And I dare say even a little French (Jill, perhaps it’s because I watched Le Divorce the night before? Antoine, can I pass for a femme Française?).
I think there is nothing better than a fitted pencil skirt. It is the epitome of ladylike sexy, appropriate for virtually every environment and every occasion. I have six; they vary in length, fabric, and style. Despite how many other pieces circulate in and out of my closet, the pencil skirts, they stay. Year after year.
Are you as in love with pencil skirts—either as the wearer or admirer—as I am?
